Subject: Wine bottle dragger Was it you?
I'm giving this 4* for the quality which is nice, and the fact that it was an awesome show but not 5*. They ended with Day Job, so you know it was hot. Bird Song and Comes a Time were fantastic in the 1st set. I loved the sarcastic Brent riffs and the "While we resume out singin' in the rain." Bobby to start set 2.

The second set was a killer for sure Music just soars with the percolator at full bore, and the Tom Thumbs just blew us all away. Estimated is sweet and Terrapin has got some nice power to it though not totally perfect. Still rockin' and you can hear the crowd is into it. A tight transition into a nice soulful Dew. Stones NFA Day Job, well sometimes you have to go through these things. "A carnival of petty wars"... How prophetic as you will see.

I don't know how much better it could get than seeing the Dead in a small stadium outdoors in the summer attached to the Hershey Pk amusement Pk., which I recall you could get into with your ticket. I guess if you throw in some hilarious parking lot stuff that does it.

I remember the stage in the 1st set being covered with a giant clear plastic tarp. It rained but I swear I do not remember being wet at all even though we were out in the stands.

I did this run of shows with the Redneck Buddha from BV. After the show, we were heading back to my '66 Bonneville that served as our Mars Hotel. We were "camping" there, so there was no rush to exit. As we were walking through the paved lot, this big old '72 GM wagon that was loaded down came through the lot nose in the air. A gallon wine jug got caught up under the crossmember. That thing eased through the lot with this giant glass bottle scraping on the pavement for what seemed like a hundred yards, making this incredible sound as it went, which had to have been unreal inside the car. We were dumbfounded at first and then started laughing so hard we almost fell out. The heads in the car were totally pissed at us for laughing at them b/c they had no idea what was wrong with their ride. About that time KABLOOSH! That bottle finally gave it up.

We relocated the Batmobile to a nice stretch of manicured grass facing the Milton Hershey School. We awoke to a bunch of griping and ruckus from this tourbus next to us with a totally self-righteous female head who berated us for all the trash that was piled up in the space that we had pulled into. We were pretty conspicuous in our appearance and vehicle and could not figure how she mistook us for whoever occupied the space prior. I allowed as much. She would have none of it and finally wheeled out in a huff. I walked over to the passenger side where our accuser had been. As I explained to the Buddha what it was all about so early in the morning, I looked down at my feet. Low and behold, a gift of a full container of some perfectly cleaned and manicured kind appeared as in a vision. We tidied up the empty stone as best we could and went on to Merriweather all the better prepared and fully vindicated.

Subject: My observant first post...
Why do people like Richmond Randy on Aug, 23, 2009 write in? What does his post even mean? I know that people who have nothing to do but demean us deadheads love to poke the sterotypical fun at us. Regardless, what does his post even mean? Really? What does that even mean? I guess my first post should be about this show. So, A nice recording. Well done. Good, not Great Show. Just my opinion.

Subject: Nice I LOVE 24BIT
Remember in the 60s when hippies were called lazy? He he.

Ironic then they created the personal computer industry eh? Saved America and our economy.

And I love the fact that the deadheads are now pointing the way to the future out to the bean counters at the record companies, just like any acid headed star trek fan would, and just like we did in the 60s with vinyl albums. 24bit FLAC is where it's at man. Haven't listened to the whole show yet, just want to give KUDOS to the authors and of course to the Dead and the Hippies!!! FREAK FREELY!!! LOVE YOU MADLY!!!
